Posted in Flagyl on March 3, 2017

A caveat to arise with: I saw an advertisement forward Twitter that wants writers to produce lists for a website. I applied. I sent this operate in, but I didn’t be~ a reply to my mail. So, the kind of the hell…

That said, this force be a one-off list or it strength be the start of a series. I’m not serious with my life and that’s a grave thing. Let’s just play it ~ means of ear abeg. Oya:

Most everyone in Nigeria are cognizant that you can’t possibly approve to the hospital for every annoyance you have. Apart from our hatred to consultation fees, some ailments are intermittent and after a while, you preempt the kind of the doctor would order – for a like rea~n you go to the neighbourhood chemist and corrupt it yourself. This act, some joyless puritanists would acquire you believe, is tantamount to the titular form of drug abuse. As we tell over here; is it your vilify?
So, below is a list of the greatest number purchased legal drugs on our streets and pharmacies (grounds to top):

10) FLAGYL: The traveler’s rejoice. I have been to 13 Nigerian states ~ means of road, and a common occurrence up~ all those journeys is people stopping the bus to take a dump or vomit because of an acute stomach upset; the pest of which range from:
>Jigging of the car on our hole-infested roads
>The perfume of petrol
>Sighting of every accident
Pure, honest-to-God lack of discipline of someone who drinks Viju at the garage, buys fried snails before leaving the park, buys LaCasera at the filling place before buying bananas, groundnut and obtrude-wine at a police checkpoint.

Flagyl is each antibacterial drug often used against dysentery and bowel issues because it stems the course and calms the stomach. Nigerians too buy Flagyl when they overeat at every Owambe and when they have runny stomachs. When the belly-god starts feeling stomach upsets, the Lagosian (there’s continually a Lagosian in every car) testament recommend Flagyl. Those Lagosians even get it in their bags!

9) VITAMIN C: I’ll spasmodic effort this one with an unpopular idea; nobody intentionally buys Vitamin C! Though shortage of Vitamin C in your rule will lead to a pretty great disease called scurvy, it is alembic only a favoured sidekick to other ‘serious’ drugs; procured in the same manner with an afterthought when the chemist doesn’t obtain change. You buy N485 worth of drugs and the chemist says “we don’t esteem N15 o”. A typical Nigerian exercise volition take N15 worth of Vitamin C by the change. Q.E.D, unavailability of change is the primary reason Nigerians corrupt Vitamin C.
That said, we buy Vitamin C when we have aperture ulcer and when we need to make sound a wound. Medically, Vitamin C is requisite in the treatment of cold, arrangement of sugar level, lowering cholesterol levels in the classification and curing skin problems. Since Vitamin C is altogether kinds of good for the body, never leave your change with the chemist.

8) EYE DROP: No, I won’t arrange the name of a particular fire-~. Yes, I did my research at topical pharmacies around me and “I fail to buy eye drop” is what those chemists say we say. The author and purposes of eye drops differ, but the most popular kinds are used in treating conjunctivitis, glaucoma, inflated in the eye, itching of the keep in view – thankfully for marijuana smokers in Nigeria, redness of the judgment.
Some people have sensitive eyes that are in a high degree. irritable, so they buy a known view drop and do the needful. Eye drops are besides favoured by people that offload cement and those that smoke fish; rigorously and literally.

7) MULTIVITAMINS: It has been extensive established that vitamins are important conducive to our everyday metabolism, and pursuant to the beyond Vitamin C, this one packs everything the punches of multiple vitamins; from this place its name Sherlock! When I was in Nsukka, I was pleasantly surprised to exercise the sense of ~ing ‘gbogbonishe’ from the megaphones attached an old car. Gbogbonishe, a Yoruba denominate, can be loosely translated to ‘multitasker’ in English. The megaphone uttered the product provided solutions to deep sperm count, hepatitis, hypertension, typhoid, miasm, snake bites and about 7 other freedom from disease issues. A bottle costs N100. You pay attention, nothing in Nigeria sells like gbogbonishe.
Due to the character of the product, multivitamins are meant to take measures all the essential effects of vitamins, on the other hand Nigerians buy it the most whenever they feel a loss of gust. That is the case with yours in sober earnest also, although I feel my defeat of appetite is due to the increased energy of my thinking – as I consideration I would be a millionaire through 23. I still buy my multivitamins anyway & according to my findings, so do millions of Nigerians.

6) INHALER: Nose inhalers prepare relief from nasal congestion and cold in the head. It works by stimulating nerve endings what one. relieve pain and itching of the mucilaginous membranes of the nose and at a past period, throat. Just like the ointment translation of itself, inhalers relieve muscular trouble, cramping and pains felt in joints. Unlike its ointment version, I have always suspected population that favour inhalers will graduate to sniffing cocaine while they can afford it. Your commander feels light and there is a undoubting kind of high that comes from inordinate inhalation of menthol-laden nose inhalers. Maybe I verily do need to stop seeing the overpower in people.

5) CALAMINE LOTION: A cavilling one. A favourite in Nigerian homes because it is thought to help in the treatment of Chicken pox. A copious aggregate is usually applied on the hide of the afflicted and the flimsy fellow ends up looking like a Whitewalker.
Is it a placebo? That’s up despite debate. Does it reduce the impression of helplessness? Undoubtedly.

Medically, it is musing to provide succor to victims of light burn, insect bites, general itchiness and other demulcent skin conditions. On an unrelated scholium, a Nigerian artiste; Sym19 titled his strike together song Calamine Lotion where he rhymed lotion with commotion and motion. That song gets me on the dance prevail over every single time.

4) ALABUKUN: It is a doubtful truism in Nigerian bars that the average man would rather buy you beer than give you money. As such, while the entrance for being inebriated is, on medial sum, around 3 bottles, people have devised ways of significantly raising that threshold. So, bar-room wisdom has established a run over of things that reduce the power of alcohol on the system. These hold, but are not limited to cruel-kola, groundnut, cola and Alabukun. The longing. of awoof beer-drinkers accounts with regard to an agreeable amount of Alabukun shifted in our supplies.
Simultaneously, Alabukun is a time-tested powdered medicine that is particularly favoured ~ the agency of blue collar workers after putting in a alter at work. It is thought to have existence effective in the treatment of migraine, back care and body ache. Whenever you request ‘these’ people over for drinks, outset with the spirit. It works in preparation for those that want to put you in ruinous debt over beer.
You’re kind reception.

3) AMPICLOX: Ampiclox is a unsalable article derived from penicillin; a popular medicine used to fight bacterial infections. These infections expedition from boil to pneumonia to meningitis to staphylococcus and syphilis. Usually, the physical secretions on the skin in the figure of boils and pimples usually point out the presence of bacteria in the system. To forestall the manifestation of these bacteria, sexually generative people who opt to NOT conversion to an act prophylactics take ampiclox after sex. This act, I’m never-failing, increases the sheer amount of ampiclox sold in Nigeria.
Please eternally, always use condoms.

“I drifted round, met lots of girls. I knew men who had sex through a different girl every night. I not ever understood it. I understood it smaller after I did it for a during the time that. It wasn’t satisfying; like Chinese cheer – an hour later, you’re famishing again…”

That is a name from Kirk Douglas’ autobiography; The Ragman’s Son. The quote captures the essence of promiscuity, I like to count. It has to be pointed off that Postinor is a pregnancy-obstruction drug, and NOT an abortion medicine. The active ingredient in Postinor-2 is LEVONGESTEROL (which really sounds like something that be possible to kill a baby); and it works ~ means of preventing the fertilization of the egg by sperm. Sex sells.
Not a ~ time ago, I went with a friend to her church where her divine, on spotting me, asked her, “is he quiescent with you?” as if I was some sort of Adonis. She said I wasn’t. I was petty shocked when he pressed further; “well, is he planning to?” She said “No”, an answer which give pain to me. I had been friendzoned!! The intent of the story is to illustrate that the fascination with, and contest in sex is as high in the manner that ever and one of the repercussions is the exhibition of unwanted pregnancies. So, Nigerians try to forbear these unwanted babies by buying and using Postinor in plenteous amounts. It has its semi-solemn side effects and this begs the subject of investigation; why can’t we just bloody abstain?! That is, unabashedly, a unentertaining rhetorical question.

1) PARACETAMOL: Unequivocally, and inescapably the chiefly popular over-the-counter drug in Nigeria. Paracetamol acts viewed like a fever-ameliorator and pain reliever. Its claim working process is unknown, but in that place is no denying the fact that it works. Paracetamol is usually bought with other drugs for efficiency. The collocation of ailments it is used by reason of include: arthritis, back pain, chest plague, any pain, toothaches, headaches, muscle aches, noxious exhalation etc.

In Nigeria however, it is our rudimentary resort when we feel any configuration of discomfort. Did you get shocked by a rogue wire from that oldschool Philips iron though pressing your shirt? Buy paracetamol.

Did you receive elbowed in the head on the ~ of battle? Buy paracetamol.

Do you have catamenial cramps? Buy paracetamol.

Heartache from loss your phone in a bus? Buy paracetamol.

Feeling hung-across? Buy paracetamol.

Write a blog carry to the ledger two months after service while you’re subdue jobless and don’t know at which place exactly your life is going? Buy paracetamol.

Paracetamol is the trusted and cheapest mould of gbogbonishe in Nigeria. And it takes the figure one spot on this list.
